“ChoreoLab – Made in Ulm 2020”. 249 Choreographic Failures.

Following the success of the choreographic works created, sold out performances and critical acclaim we are proud to announce our second open call for “ChoreoLab – Made in Ulm” in 2020. We are offering three choreographic residency opportunities to talented upcoming dance makers. This is an open call to choreographers up to 35 years young on the 21st of August 2020. We will commission talented emerging creators and give them the opportunity to conceptualise, create, execute and premier their work in a black box stage with four professional dancers. You will be collaborating with local choreographer Pablo Sansalvador to create an evening of dance inspired by this years theme and title: ‘249 Choreographic Failures’ (249CF).

The 2020 theme is in memory of Albrecht Ludwig Berblinger’s 250th birthday. Berblinger was an ingenious and a risk-taking inventor from Ulm. Better known as "Schneider von Ulm" he went down in history in 1811 for his failed flight attempt.
As part of the anniversary celebrations "Berblinger 2020” is generating artistic works based on innovation, inventiveness, courage and adaptability in our urban society. Berblinger’s resilience through failure is what defined him and what inspires us. “ChoreoLab – Made in Ulm” is honouring Berblinger by inviting dance makers to create choreography from a leaping off point that we constantly try to avoid; Failure.

We invite dance makers, choreographers, film-makers and artists to connect to create a 60 second short film demonstrating a ‘Choreographic Failure’. A jury will select 10 finalists of whom each will be awarded 100 euros for their efforts. Then the ten shortlisted films will be shared in a public space where people from Ulm can watch each film and vote for whom they would like to see awarded the residency. We have up to three one week residencies to offer. Be brave, there is no wrong way to fail.

How will the winners of the residency be selected?
A jury will select 10 finalists by the end of May and each will be awarded 100 euros. The ten finalist films will be displayed in a public space in Ulm's city centre and presented during the Ulm Moves Dance Festival in June 2020. Members of the public and dance aficionados will vote for up to three choreographers to create a short work representing ‘choreographic failure’ for ChoreoLab - Made in Ulm 2020.

Prizes: 

What does the residency offer?
-A fee for the creation of your work
-A travel budget to Ulm and local accommodation during your stay
-Four professional dancers to create the piece
-A creation week with a minimum of 32 hours rehearsal with the four dancers, inside the performance space
-A professional recording of your piece and a 60 second trailer
-Photographic documentation of your creation week and performance

OPEN CALL: Futureless - QueerFeminist Group Exhibition

Share

Country:

City:

Eligibility:

For the upcoming Futureless group exhibition, taking place between April 1 and 9 at SomoS Berlin, the SomoS curatorial team is calling for ephemeral installations, durational art pieces, performative lectures/projects as well as discourse-based work and other art forms that deal with topics related to queer/feminist* futures, including:

  • The role of imagination, fantasy, fiction and speculation in shaping alternative futures.
  • Digitization, technological and scientific development.
  • Earthly, ecological and environmental precarity.
  • Ecosexuality and the relationships between humans and the rest of nature.

Deadline: January 26, 2020, midnight

Application fee: none

Eligibility: international artists working in any medium

From their political root, queer/feminist identities, ideas and actions offer alternative perspectives on how society can be continuously shaped and reshaped differently. With the capitalist dream of progress fading, the Futureless group exhibition recognises an important history of queer/feminist futurism that generates possibility through imagination; the writing of Samuel R. Delany and Octavia Butler, films such as Lizzy Borden’s Born in Flames, Shu Lea Chang’s Fluido and the cult-classic Rocky Horror Picture Show, as well as the art of Juliana Huxtable and Rebecca Belmore, all come to mind to name just some examples.

The loss of a future once thought by some as great and bright leaves us in a futureless state. Such a state may feel at once empty and ominous, yet also appear as a vast and promising site for speculative fiction and fantasy. In this futureless void, queer/feminist answers become not only increasingly relevant, but also more articulate. What does it mean for queer/feminist thought and art that the future is missing? How can we dream of and interpret the present as seen from the future? 

Artists may respond to some of the following questions:

  • Which mythological, fantastical or other-worldly perspectives or examples are beneficial for life on a precarious planet? 
  • What does a queer/feminist utopia look like? In contrast, what does a queer/feminist dystopia look like?
  • What is the future of gender?
  • How can we foster a queer/feminist ecosystem?
  • To what extent is ecological struggle the struggle for universal emancipation?
  • How may we perform rituals to recognise the loss of the future?
  • What are the connections between queer/feminist perspectives on future and others that are formed out of minority positions or resistance, e.g. Afrofuturism, indigenous futurism, decolonization, Trans Futurism, among others?

Both existing works as well as new works are eligible for participation.

Submissions to the exhibition should include a detailed description of the artwork or project. We will look at any proposal with great interest and an open mind, but are especially eager to include installation based pieces, works that are durational, participative and/or interactive, for example, performances, and other works that take shape over time, works that are built in situ before or during the exhibition, works that create their own environment or that involve building an environment that is the backdrop to a performance as well as works that invoke all these forms and incorporate discourse into them through lecture, text etc.

Selected artists/performers will be invited to participate in a group exhibition at SomoS Art House in Berlin that will take place from 01.04.2020-09.04-2020.

*Please note: Considering the common questions of gender and sexuality, we included both queer and feminist perspectives in this Open Call. We encourage submissions that are both queer and feminist, as well as other submissions that lean towards one term or the other. We aimed to express this through the formulation of queer/feminist throughout the Open Call.

Please visit our website below to find out more and to submit your proposal.

Urban Challenges - Take part in a photography exhibition in Berlin

Share

Country:

City:

Eligibility:

As the urban population is growing steadily, cities are increasingly facing new important challenges - let them be social, environmental or economical. Our urban experience keeps on transforming and new questions arise every day. How to share the space? How should we build? Is there enough space for sports, health and culture? Where do people work? What is the role of the public institutions? Which places are left for the communities? How to integrate the digital world and improve mobility? Which are the alternatives to the cars? How can cities become a responsible actor when climate change is concerned? Which sustainable options do we have? How to create connections? If the issues raised are numerous, they may as well open up new perspectives to enhance the quality of life of citizens. Either documenting the reality or imagining future transformations, we would like to discover the work of photographers embracing this topic.

The selected artists will take part in a collective exhibition at the gallery of B-Part in Berlin in February 2020.

Deadline: January 5, 2020
